The bream and flathead fishing around the local and out of town estuaries has been excellent, even with heavy holiday crowds. The cooler water temperatures
have got the bream at a comfortable level where they can feed in the shallows without the water being too hot, and the flathead can also ambush these
shallow areas too.
Customer Morgan was down in Gippsland with mate Jinsu where they caught some nice bream on lures. Overcast and slightly breezy conditions made for some
good fishing, with the fish eager to eat the lures. The most effective lures on the day were the Jackall 'spytail' jointed stickbaits. When these lures
were fished with sharp twitches and a pause the fish would hit them ferociously.
Customer Shane has been out near Lakes Entrance over the break chasing the big flathead about. Shane ordered in some 'live prawn' soft plastics to give
a good run on the big flatties and he has put them straight to good use. Shane has been catching good numbers of table flathead on these lures but
also fish to nearly 70cm.
Working these live prawns with a sharp-hop-and-fall retrieve has been the best way to get the attention of the larger flathead, and being tear-resistant
they seem to last well against the sharp teeth.
Customer Tony has been back to his old tricks, catching some nice bream in the Patto.Tony fished after some light rain using freshwater yabbies and landed
6 nice fish up to 42cm. Among these, 3 fish busted Tony off against the pylons and mussel encrusted poles, and that was on 10lb leader. The Patto will
continue to fish well as we get some more rain during Autumn.
